August 22, 2009 Photography Projects, Dollar Theatre Dollars, and Free and Legal Downloads

The nationally published team of Jim and Jessica Kronmiller of Kronmiller Creative Portraiture have a ton of interesting projects going on.  The first is the Portraits of Love Project, a volunteer effort aimed at sending family portraits to soldiers around the globe this holiday season.

Designed to help bring a piece of home to soldiers around the world, the project is utilizing the talents of over 150 volunteer photographers across the country who are opening their studios this September, to offer free family portraits to military family members who have a soldier deployed overseas.

As part of this project, Jim and Jessica Kronmiller of Kronmiller Creative Portraiture in Oil City, Pa, have opened their studio during the month of September to take professional family portraits of soldier’s families. Military family members call them at 814 – 673 – 0900, or go online to make an appointment. You will have to show a valid military ID to be eligible for this offer.

The second is the continuing  project looking for women of all ages that have beautified themselves with tattoos or piercings to be photographed.  Anyone under 18 years of age must have their parents sign a release. An organizational meeting will be held Tuesday September 1st at 7 pm in the National Transit Building on Seneca St. in Oil City, PA.  Call 814-673-0900 to schedule an appointment to discuss or become part of the project.

After more than three years, the Meadville Cinema is finally planning to open.
